There's no denying that our playerbase has shrunk quite a lot as of a few months ago. Here's what we are doing to try to bring that back on track:

- Survival World2 Reset. The Manager+ team is currently protecting temples/villages and we are making the finishing touches for the World2 Reset. Once everything is done, we will post a front page announcement after which you will have 3 months to get everything moved. I am hoping the World Reset would bring some players back
- New Bungee Server: UHC / KitPvP. I recognize the need of some sort of PvP server on our Bungee Network, but I really don't want Factions again. Prison would also be a candidate, but I believe that in order for it to attract players, it has to be something that can be played with only a few players online (but better with more), it has to be something that can't possibly attract drama and it has to be something fun. @BluetigerESW is trying his hand with a UHC / KitPvP hybrid that he is making for SFT. There will be custom plugins, but also readily-available plugins such as mCMMO, etc. The combat / pvp will be the old style combat (not 1.12 combat)
- SkyFactory: @blalp is working on replacing the very flawed and buggy modpack Lost Islands with a new one - SkyFactory. It's his project and he is putting all his resources into that, including developing some unique plugins for it.
- Pixelmon: @Dpa1991 is constantly trying to re-invent the wheel and add new and cool stuff to the SFT Pixelmon 1.10.2 Modpack. I strongly suggest checking it out, you wouldn't believe how much Dpa works on this modpack each day..
- Ads. I am currently paying for ads from my own pocket (seing as we aren't getting enough revenue), in hopes of making SFT a bit more popular

Overall, things are looking not so good, but there are a few rays of sunshine (described above). Also, please do know that I will continue to support SFT out of my own wallet.
I'd also like to thank the recent wave of donations that occured in these last few days. It's encouraging and I want everyone that is thinking of donating but not doing it because they are afraid it would be in vain that SFT won't be shut down any time soon, or at least as long as I can help.

Just keep going huh.

and also; how old are you? I've always imagined you as like a old irish man that drinks whiskey and screams at people to get off his lawn while sitting on a bench in the park. But I'm pretty sure that's not the case because if it was: 1. you're a pedophile and 2. you're a pedophile

Do yourself a favor and ignore anyone who tells you to be yourself. Bad idea in your case.

Just my person opinion, as I don't play anymore because of the tiny player base, I think we should cut back on the amount of 'things' in SFT. I think it may be a bit too overwhelming for new players, the text games, all the plugins, just keep what is popular and what people use. Maybe a vote. Part of the reason I left SFT was because it was becoming like my steam library, so much shit yet I felt like I had nothing to do. I really hope that SFT becomes more popular again, as it was basically my entry into gaming. Also maybe cut down on servers that aren't being used like at ALL to save money? Please respond with your ideas, and what you all think. :)

You don't have to play on the other SFT servers. You can just choose to play on one.

Also Tow, I've been trying to spread word of SFT by talking with my friends that play minecraft. So far idk if any of them have joined. But I hope all is well.
DO YOU WANNA HAVE A BAD TEM?

hmm what servers would those be?
this post is a bit over 4months old but haven't really heard about big changes about it so would assume it's still a decent quoteable post

Main (Survival + Pixelmon)   $116 / mo
Games (bTeam + Lost + PE + Ark + GMod + Creative + Factions) $50 / mo
- Main and Games are dedicated servers. So shutting down Creative + Factions + Lost for example would save no money because we would still have the machine for bTeam which is still our 2nd most popular server, as well as PE and so on
